    Laughing Until I'm Crying

    Because I allow stress to build up over long periods of time without displaying outward signs of distress, when I laugh I tend to laugh until I'm crying....and then I do this weird laughing/crying combination because all that stress is finally being let loose. Unfortunately, once...

    The Best Medicine

    Laughter is truly the best medicine. Along with music, laughter helps me deal with my stress. It relaxes me and helps me focus. I can’t imagine not having these two things in my life, especially when I’m dealing with problems.
